Two models from the fifth-gen Redmi line have already been out. The Xiaomi Redmi 5A costs 599 yuan ($90), while the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A is available at 699 yuan ($106). In terms of pricing, the Xiaomi full-screen phone should be priced around 1000 yuan ($150) to compete with the Huawei model. According to rumors, the new phone will cost 899 yuan ($136). This is quite affordable if taking into account we are dealing with a full-screen smartphone.
The new model that has visited TENNA carries a model number of MET7. Some people think this phone will be called the Xiaomi Redmi 5 or the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5. We tend to think this is the latter, as the former one has visited TENAA for a few months back and it carried a model number of MAE136. By the way, there is also another rumored phone with the same feature, but it looks different. It should be the Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus.
Well, let’s think of this phone as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5. As the TENAA photos showcase, it comes with a Samsung S8-like design and a metal body using a three-stage design. Thus the lower and upper parts should be made of plastic for better signal transmission. Plus, there is a single camera along with a back-mounted fingerprint scanner.
As for the hardware, TENAA doesn’t reveal anything concerning its features. But some Mi fans are sure the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 will be the first Snapdragon 450-packed phone. This processor has been made for low-end models. It runs on a 14nm process node and comes with an octa-core A53 architecture. It’s the enhanced variant of the Snapdragon 435 that supports dual-camera. As for the other improvements, the performance has been improved by 25%, the graphics performance has been increased by 25% as well due to Adreno 506 found on the Snapdragon 625/626, and at last, the power consumption has been reduced by 30%. This chip is paired with a 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Finally, the screen is said to be at 5.7 inches with a resolution of 1440 × 720 pixels. So 899 yuan price tag should be a finding for it.
